Hi all,
Not much to report this morning.
Got on the water about 0525, and caught a grinner after about 4 minutes, decided to keep him for bait (another day). At about 0600 had a nice tussle with a pinky, but he came in at just 34cm, 1cm too short to keep. After that it went really quiet. Both fish were caught on my new rapala Nordic Perch. Had troubles with it, being too deep a diver on the reef. I might fiddle with the bib on this one later, far too good not to use.
A nice morning though, weather was kind, lots of jellyfish, and some weed around. I heard one commotion behind the yak, that lasted for about ten seconds, I guess it was some kind of bait boil. I did not actually see any fish, I turned around and paddled back where I thought the action might be, but there was no action.. On this trip, I finally got to use the okuma reel, and 15kg braid that I have taken with me on about six trips now, and not even used. That reel is now tried, but as yet unblooded

Cheers all Andybear :lol:

Yes indeed.... it was a lovely morn. Trouble is, I have to get ready for work now, and that feeling of satisfaction/controlled exhaustion/dehydration and euphoria, all change places about this time of day. IE. Dont really feel like working, would sleep instead... but is not allowed.
I will save my energy now for the November comp..... That is unless a day off comes along, and the weather is nice..... know what I mean?

Cheers all Andybear :lol:

We should start to see a lot more reed developing over the reefs around SE QLD and that should bring in the Snapper big time.
